April 25, 2019 marked completion of the 8th international conference HEAVY CASPIAN focused on oversize and heavy-lift transportation in the Caspian Sea and Central Asian regions.
This year the conference was visited by more than 130 delegates from Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Georgia, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Turkey and UAE.
The conference highlighted various project logistics aspects. In particular, speakers from A.R.T. Business Group and TECHNO WEST LTD went into detail describing existing routes and condition of associated infrastructure for shipment of such cargoes through Kazakhstan’s sea and inland ports. In his turn, Nurbolat Karimov, Deputy General Director for Operations of TenizService, spoke about construction of the transportation route for project loads destined for the Tengiz Field Expansion Project. This state-of-the-art road and port infrastructure will be accessible to all transport market members after 2021.
Vladimir Dorokhov, STS Logistics’ Director Regional Development, highlighted aspects of reloading out-of-gauge equipment from China on inland border terminals of Kazakhstan giving a specific example of a drill rig transportation.
Konstantin Grinevich, General Director of Glogos Project, shared his view on advantages of water shipment of extralong and super heavy cargoes. He specifically dwelled on two projects: delivery of wind-powered generators from China to Ulyanovsk and transportation of casings from Shanghai to Mayak settlement (Samara Oblast).
Representatives of Keen-Mark Group gave two technical speeches on unique potential of modern self-propelled machinery as well as projects related to oversize and heavy-lift handling by means of craneless rigging methods. Namely, Aleksei Lindstrem told the audience about one project where Keen-Mark’s role covered trucking from the temporary Ro-Ro jetty to the unloading point in the petrochemical plant. A real challenge was to come over three bridges which turned out impassable for this kind of load. However, thanks to nonstandard technical solutions these obstacles were successfully tackled. This speech was followed up by Stanislav Kramnik who shared equally interesting engineering solutions of overcoming such obstacles as bridge structures.
The conference came to a close with speeches made by Pandi Trans and SEAMES reflecting the need for the more extensive deployment of insurance coverage and survey while preparing for the projects associated with handling and installation of project loads.
